"This Government is committed to making transgender equality a reality. In March 2011, the Government published 'Working for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality: Moving Forward', which included Government's commitments to tear down barriers and advance equal opportunities for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in all areas of society - including in schools, at work and in healthcare. We are already making progress but we are not stopping there.

This first ever Government transgender equality action plan forms part of our wider work to build an equal and fair society".
